After meeting your guide at your central hotel in Ljubljana buckle-up in your air-conditioned minivan for a half-day tour of Predjama Castle and Postojna Cave. Cruise the Slovenian countryside before you approach the mouth of a cave where the Predjama Castle is wedged into the cliffside.

With your guide or on your own, begin your adventure through the labyrinth of staircases. Stop in different chambers and see antique furnishings and historical armaments. Discover the legend of Erazem Predjama, owner of the castle in the 15th century, who used a secret tunnel to collect supplies, mostly cherries, while the castle was being endlessly attacked.

Later meet with your group and journey to Postojna Cave. Hop aboard the electric mini-train and voyage into this cave along a rail system that was built in 1872. Learn about how calcites, stalagmites, and stalactites were formed by the Pivka river in this 20-km (13-mile) network of caves. Then delve into the interesting biology that resides here cumulating 100 different species. Hear about the blind salamanders locally referred to as “human fish” that wander the subsurface rivers within.

Emerge from the caves and hop back into your mini-van for a leisurely ride back to your Ljubljana hotel.

Brilliant half day tour around the caves and castle. Even though it rained, the tour wasn’t affected as most of it is indoors. Tomas the tour guide was very good and knowledgeable too

Don't miss the caves!

This is a nice way to spend an afternoon from Ljubljana. Predjama castle is very unique (even if you have castle fatigue). There's a relatively quick audioguide to lead you around for a little less than an hour. Postonja cave tour is very well organized with a train in, then a walk inside. This is an amazing sight to see, highly recommended. Look out for the baby dragons! You are able to take non-flash pictures here, which may be appealing to some people as you can't at the UNESCO Skocjan Caves. (I didn't learn this on this tour, but the reason is too much light (even infrared) can encourage algae growth that would otherwise interfere with the cave environment). The cost of this tour is worth not having to rent a car and worry about parking yourself at each attraction.

Beautiful places, excellent guide

Our guide Nina was great. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel as scheduled. Both sights were beautiful. Nina was a great guide at the castle. The only thing that was a little disappointing was, we didn't realize that at the cave they don't allow private guides, they have their own. Would have been nicer had it been possible to tour the cave with Nina and our small group. The assigned guide was good but the group was huge. I understand that these are the rules of the cave. I must say though that Nina did take care that everything should go smoothly for us going in and coming out of the cave.

This was a fantastic tour. The castle was amazing, built right into the rock wall of the mountain. The cave was truly incredible. First we took a train ride about a mile in and then the tour began. I've never been so deep underground before! The cave tour was good. Especially great, though, were our Viator guides. So enthusiastic, so happy to share all they knew, so happy in general. We had a fabulous day and I highly recommend this tour.
